Ipswich East Suffolk III 4 Felixstowe III 1

Ipswich East Suffolk III pulled off a superb win over high-flying Felixstowe III on Saturday.

Felixstowe justified their league position by dominating the first 15 minutes of play. With skilful passing Felixstowe penetrated the IES defence several times and on the quarter hour mark won and converted a penalty corner.

IES however, were not to be outdone and consolidated. From that point on IES took the game to the visitors and were rewarded with an equaliser. Graydon Webb deflecting home a pass from Tim Cornish past an unsettled keeper.

After the break IES fully expected Felixstowe to rally but this was not forthcoming and IES were quickly rewarded with a second scored by Alistair Kelly, the ball struck from the left and hitting the right hand goal post to go in behind the keeper. IES really had the bit between the teeth and there was no stopping them.

Gary Wardman-Browne, battling hard up the right wing, passed the ball across to man-of-the-match Tim Cornish, who scored a deserved third goal for IES.

Felixstowe tried hard to take back the initiative and against a tiring IES did undertake a few probing runs but these were competently stopped by the efficiency of the IES defence.

Late in the game John Wright, taking the ball off the Felixstowe right half, side stepped their right back to pass the ball across to Tim Cornish who laid on the perfect ball for Graydon Webb to slot home.
